Soup Diary 120620

When is Black Bean Chili actually Black Bean Chili?  I had a bowl of something called that on a menu a few days back, and while it was actually pretty good, it sure tasted (and looked) more like a soup than a chili.  That is, it was beans and peppers and onions in a fairly liquidy brown broth rather than a thicker chili-style sauce.  I'm sure the distinction is based more on the ingredients than the consistency of the stuff, but while there were definitely big chunks of green pepper in the mix, I did not detect any actual chili peppers (or for that matter, chili flavor). I guess it really doesn't matter, but if I'm going to keep writing up these encounters, I have to have something to comment on, right?
